Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Peter Boamah Otokunor has called on international observers and the diplomatic corps to make sure President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo concedes defeat in the just-ended elections.
Referring to the president as the “outgoing president”, Mr Otokunor said it is in the government’s own interest for the president to concede defeat.
“Let me use this opportunity to as a matter of urgency and importance call on the outgoing president, President William Akufo-Addo, to concede defeat in the interest of the sanctity of our democracy,” he said at a press conference at the headquarters of the NDC.
The calls come after the party claimed winning Monday’s elections.
He listed some of the constituencies that have flipped to the opposition after the elections, reiterating that the party has won 140 out of the 275 constituencies.
The one-time Ablekuma Central Parliamentary Candidate aspirant also reiterated his party leader’s warning to government to desist from any attempts to overturn the results.
For them, the Akufo-Addo-led government has resorted to the military to overturn results in some key constituencies they lost.
